mylittlebrother are best described as indie rock/pop with echoes of West Coast Americana and 60’s pop This Cumbrian four piece master the art of creating harmonious, insanely catchy songs. Swathed in vocal melody, they use driving electric guitars and piano to deliver upbeat pop that often hides a cynical, sometimes melancholic, darker undertone.

They are led by Penrith-based singer-songwriter Will Harris. Will is also known as a member of Scottish band ‘Aaron Wright & the Aprils’, with whom he has worked with members of Teenage Fanclub, Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura, The Blue Nile and many more. Over the past 10 years they have toured with the likes of The Charlatans, Ocean Colour Scene and Eliza Doolittle, and appeared at festivals across Europe including Glastonbury, Benicassim, Latitude, T in the park, Electric Picnic and dozens more.

Will (piano and lead vocal) is joined by Dan Mason on guitar/vocals, Robin Howson on bass/vocals and Simon Buttress on drums/vocals. Their 3 EPs and 1 album have received rave reviews, and gained airplay from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Local Radio, Radio Caroline and many more, and have featured on BBC television, ITV, Channel 4 and in several short films. Tom Robinson, of BBC 6 music, described their debut single ‘Nosedive’ as “A worthy contender for record of the week”. Their most recent singles ‘Love Song For An Island’ and ‘Cyanide’ reflect their new, fuller sound.

They spent last year recording their new album ‘Howl’ which is due out this Summer, and they also had a busy time with a headline slot on Kendal Calling’s Yam Riot Stage, a performance at the British Sea Power curated Krankenhaus, lots more festivals, and supported the likes of Glasvegas and Juniore.
